Show Notes

Beginning on a health journey can be overwhelming. As expenses mount up, so do stress levels! Listen in as I share some of my tips for reducing the money stress while you are working towards a healthier diet and lifestyle and trying to heal your family. I also demonstrate how I make a simple, inexpensive, nutrient dense dinner that my family loves. (Scroll down for ingredients list.)

In this episode you’ll learn about:

– why unrealistic expectations and comparing yourself to others can sabotage your efforts to heal

– ways to improve your health that don’t cost money

– reducing stress by reducing the busyness and lifestyle ‘clutter’

– the long term approach to improving your health

– the importance of nature therapy

– reducing food waste

– buying in bulk to save money on groceries

– how to store bulk ingredients

– how to reduce the meat in your meals

– how to bulk out meals to make them cheaper and more filling, without using starchy fillers

– how to ‘do what you can, where you are, with what you’ve got’!

If you haven’t already listened to my last podcast you might also find it helpful, as we discuss the importance of letting go of a ‘perfectionist’ mindset, and beginning where you are when working on health changes: “Spicy Cabbage Rolls + Done Is Better Than Perfect!”
